Exchange System Manager snapin options

I have installed exchange system manager snapin on a win XP client machine. When I right-click a public folder and choose Tasks, my options are to "mail disable" and "send contents," and "propagate settings" is grayed out.  When I use ESM on one of the Exchange servers, my options are to "mail disable" and "resend changes," and "manage settings" is grayed out.  What's the reason for the difference?

Thanks

Hi deshaw,

It seems as though the account you're using do not have sufficient privliges. I have assigned my user account as part of the Exchange Enterprise Servers security group and my snap-in allows all access.

Hope this works for you.

Cheers

I am using the same account in both client and server and I get different options. My account is a domain admin account. My question is why do I get different options in ESM snap-in when used in client and server?

do you have the same level of SP on the client and server?

I have installed only the exchange system manager client on the Win XP machine. I dont think there is any service pack for the client, whereas my exchange server 2003 has SP2 installed. I have installed the exchange client on another win 2003 server(which doent have Exchange 2003 installed) and the options in this server is same as what I get on Win XP machine but different from that on an Exchange server.

run the setup.exe/update.exe that comes in the SP2 folder.
during the setup prompt, select only the exchange management components (the same way that you installed earlier)

Thanks Rakesh. This solved my issue. After installing Exchange 2003 SP2 on the Win XP machine, the problem is solved. I am getting the same options in ESM as that in the Exchange server.

Thanks
